ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The number of homicides in Anchorage in 2014 was among the lowest in two decades.

Alaska Dispatch News (https://is.gd/DXfuEy) reports homicide detectives investigated the deaths of 14 people last year.

One of those deaths is not being counted as a homicide that has been confirmed.

Two of the cases remain unsolved, with no arrests made or suspects named.

There were two victims in one of the 2014 cases.

Police say the year’s total is the second lowest number of homicides for the city in 24 years.

The city has averaged more than 20 homicides annually since 1991.
